We stayed one night at Chelka Lodge on our way home from a college tour. It was recommended by someone who had a place there. The lodge is right on the water, has its own strip of beach with a swimming area great for little kids, diving platform, as well as kayaks and row boats that you can row out into the cove in front of the property. It was nice not to have to rent this equipment and it was fun to be out on the water. We played shuffle board...I know...but the lack of electronics and the fun of ping pong, basket ball and shuffleboard made for a lovely evening with my teens. One gentleman played the guitar for a while and later on, as the sun was setting, another young man played the violin while I gazed out at the sunset on the lake. Peaceful. Relaxing. Worth every penny.
The rooms are simple and comfortable, motel style. Bit pricey but its the season. The breakfast room has cereal, oatmeal, muffins, coffee and tea. Friendly staff. Its nice to have this included and not have to go out for breakfast. Worth the visit and I would go back.
